Crop Dusting Helicopter

We were out at the farm this weekend and happened to be there when the farm across the road had its crops dusted by a small helicopter. As someone who has done some flying (not helicopters though), his low altitude antics looked like a lot of fun.

 

Although I'm not terribly happy with this photo because it isn't terribly sharp and I inadvertently stopped the rotors, rather than allowing them to blur just a bit, I still wanted to show it to give you a sense of how low this guy was flying. Much lower and he'd be de-tasseling the corn as he sprayed it!
